If you're one of the unlucky people who doesn't get time off over Christmas while your mates are all frolicking in the sun, you'll be pleased to know there's some flight deals for 2017 which are well, absolutely bonkers.
The price of air travel seems to be dropping lower and lower (thank God) and Jetstar's $59 one-way flight offer to The Whitsundays is just the news we want to here.
The deal launched on Tuesday and will run until Thursday (those T+C's will get you) but if you are lucky enough to have a bit of spare cash then it might be time to treat yourself.
Why are they doing this?! Well, Jetstar has just launched direct flights from Sydney starting in April 4, 2017 that will run three times a week.
Flights from Brisbane will rise from seven to 10 over peak season, which kicked off Wednesday and flights from Melbourne will go from three to four times a week, all-year-round starting next March. So evidently, it's time to celebrate (and get bottoms on seats).
If you think every beach in the @whitsundaysqld is crowded, think again! There's more to this beautiful part of @queensland than the famous spots like #WhitehavenBeach - although these are a must-see, there are hundreds of secret coves and beaches waiting to be discovered too. The #Whitsundays are accessible by air from several of Australia's capital cities, or via boat from the coastal township of #AirlieBeach. Photo: @saltywings
Believe it or not Jetstar isn't the only airline to have gone seemingly mad, Virgin has also launched some cheap flights to the island paradise that is FIJI.
It'll usually cost you around $350 one way to head over with Virgin from Sydney but if you book before December 19th you can nab one for $199. BRB BOOKING A FLIGHT.
It's a little bit more pricey for those in Melbourne at $299 and Brisbane at $209, but still totally worth it. You also get 23kg checked baggage (made up entirely of bikinis).
This private island paradise, accessible by its own airport has just 25 luxurious villas, each individually designed with an eye to traditional Fijian style and all with private pools, which are set amidst the swaying palms of coconut plantations, powdery white sand beaches, turquoise lagoons, lush green mountains and breath-taking natural beauty. #fiji #laucalaisland #island #holiday #southpacific #travel
